This was my final week as a sample maker for the Sketch Challenge over on Splitcoaststampers. Allison had given us a daunting task with this sketch:
My card started out as basically a Clean and Simple design, but morphed into something a bit more "busy."
I sponged the rays with Ranger Distress Scattered Straw ink and planned just to add the sun/moon panel and the sentiment, which definitely would have been CAS. However, I smudged a bit of ink onto the sunrays; and, after all the time it took to do that sponging, I was not about to throw it away. So I cut a small flourish and adhered it strategically to cover the smudge. Then I had to add the Enamel Dot stickers to balance out the flourish. No longer CAS!
I enjoyed my stint as part of the Sketch Challenge team. It was supposed to be a three-month gig, but it extended to five months -- and I had a grand time. Thanks, Janette, for asking me.
